Hot on the heels of William Shatner making his first-ever appearance at the Star Trek: The Original Series Set Tour, tour creator James Cawley has announced that Karl Urban – Star Trek’s current Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy -- will headline Trekonderoga 2018. Urban will lead set tours, sign autographs, pose for photo ops, and more.
An annual event, Trekonderoga provides fans the opportunity to meet and greet Trek stars in a more intimate and relaxed setting: the painstakingly recreated starship Enterprise sets, sets that make you feel you’ve been beamed back to Desilu in 1966. It’s there that fans will have access to photo ops, autographs and celebrity guest talks. And with crowd sizes kept to a limited number, the event itself is manageable and fun. Attendees can also expect to enjoy a scale-model competition and trivia panels, plus a cosplay contest.
The Star Trek: The Original Series Set Tour was erected based on the original blueprints and detailing. Fans can walk the corridors and visit sickbay, a briefing room, the captain’s quarters, transporter room and main engineering section of the Enterprise. Tour guides share behind-the-scenes information and explain how the original sets were designed and built. And the tour saves the best for last: the iconic main bridge, where the human adventure really began.
